AFMA turns 25!!!!

What do the band Hanson and the Australian Fisheries Management Authority (AFMA) have in common? Both were formed in 1992!

That’s right, for a quarter of a century, AFMA has been regulating our Commonwealth fisheries, helping to ensure that current and future generations have a healthy supply of Australian seafood.

AFMA was established on 3 February 1992 as the statutory authority model for the management of Australia’s Commonwealth fisheries under the Fisheries Administration Act 1991.

AFMA will be celebrating its birthday all month long, reflecting on how things have changed in 25 years (eg – a tweet was just a noise a bird made in 1992!). Come join the celebration on AFMA’s Facebook page.
